FREE webinar Introduction to business Risk assessment-with specific reference to online working

Understanding how to undertake a risk assessment is important for all businesses, organisations including counsellors and therapists working online. In this free webinar, Mel Wilson (Integrative Therapist) and Dave (cyber security specialist) will show you why risk assessments are necessary and will also provide some useful hints and tips.

In this introduction we will explore how to initiate this process and the considerations & mitigation you might want to include as well as a discussion on individual areas should time allow. For example, this is not just about blindly following is ‘X the right program to use’…. or ‘what is the security of Y’.
